Port approves Neptune coal expansion

Export capacity to double but will not increase off-terminal coal dust: Neptune Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

NEPTUNE Terminals can likely double the amount of steelmaking coal being handled at its North Vancouver location following Wednesday’s Port Metro Vancouver decision to approve a major upgrade.

Moving from exporting nine million tonnes of metallurgical coal to 18 million tonnes required a 12-metre tall dumper, conveyors, and a new, longer shiploader boom that Neptune applied for last June. The new equipment is designed to allow coal trains to be unloaded faster at the terminal and is expected to create 185 permanent jobs. The upgrades will likely mean one extra train coming into the terminal each day, and an extra two ships every three weeks. The trains will likely be 152 cars long, as opposed to the 126-car trains currently used at the terminal. The primary objections to the upgrade were global environmental concerns and local worries about carcinogenic coal dust. “It’s our job to keep the coal that we handle on our terminal,” said Jim Belsheim, president of Neptune Terminals. Neptune deals with changing weather conditions by utilizing three micro-weather stations that judge wind and humidity See We page 3

Film industry worries attract thousands to rally

Christine Lyon clyon@nsnews.com

LOCAL actor and producer Rob LaBelle was among the estimated 4,000-plus people who attended a rally at North Shore Studios Tuesday night in a united bid to save the declining B.C. film industry.

CANADIAN army reservists with the Seaforth Highlanders infantry regiment and local army cadets prepare for an overnight winter exercise on Mount Seymour Saturday. Guided by North Shore Rescue team members, the 45 soldier strong contingent practised safety and avalanche drills as well as winter camping.

“I’m very pessimistic about the future of the industry here if the status quo remains,” said LaBelle, an Ambleside resident and executive in charge of television at Foundation Features, which is currently producing the CTV crime show Motive. Like many B.C. film industry professionals, LaBelle is worried about the impact of a 2009 change, when the Ontario and Quebec governments increased the tax credits offered to foreign movie projects. “These last three years were particularly disturbingly slow as an actor,” LaBelle said. “I know many actors who have moved to Toronto.” See Minister page 3

Eagles’ nest staying put, says activist Port Metro Vancouver consulting

Grosvenor to buy Edgemont SuperValu Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

GROSVENOR development group announced plans to buy the SuperValu site in Edgemont Village Tuesday.

Grosvenor will submit their plans for a mixed-use building perched over a retail podium which would include a new grocery store according to James Patillo, senior vicepresident of Grosvenor Americas. “I imagine three to four storeys is something that would be contemplated,” Patillo said, stipulating that planning is in a very early phase. “There hasn’t been a lot of new product there. (We’re) certainly looking at both downsizer units and units that would be suitable for young families.” Grosvenor is slated to officially become the owners of the property on March 11. The grocery store is scheduled to be converted to a Thrifty Foods following a fourday closure beginning March 10. “That’ll be run very similar to the way it is now, it’s just a different name on it,” Patillo said. SuperValu employees will be invited to apply for work at the new store, according to Patillo. “We anticipate it will be a bigger store and so there would likely be more employees. More of a full-size, full-service grocery store,” he said. The entire ground floor of the development would likely be a mix of retail shops, according to Patillo. Townhouses facing onto Ridgewood Drive are also a possibility, he said. Grosvenor is currently awaiting the District of West Vancouver’s ruling on their bid to purchase the 1300-block of Marine Drive in Ambleside, replacing the police station as well as the rest of the southern side of the block with tiered mid-rise towers peaking at eight storeys.

biologist on mitigation plan

ACTIVISTS are vowing to continue protecting a seemingly vacant eagles’ nest on Port Metro Vancouver land scheduled to be cleared as part of the Low Level Road project.

MAYOR Darrell Mussato, HYAD secretary-treasurer Vera Frinton, MLA Naomi Yamamoto, future resident Danny MacLean and HYAD vice-president Cavan Stevens break ground Jan. 18 on what will be an affordable housing development for young adults with developmental challenges at 2130 Chesterfield Ave.

The port had sent arbourists to cut the tree on East Esplanade down Monday, but protesters converged at the base of the tree, prevent work crews from bringing it down. While there is no indication from the port as to when fallers will be back, they should expect to be greeted by more protesters when the time comes, says Paul Berlinguette, president of the North Shore Wetland Partners. “We’re going to draw a line and we’re digging in. This is only one of the fronts we’re on right now and it’s going to get real aggressive with the (Port Metro Vancouver,)” said Berlinguette, who was on of the first protesters on the scene Tuesday. “I live right near there and heard the chainsaws and basically ran down there without my jacket or telephone or anything.” PMV is consulting with eagle biologist David Hancock, who is advising the port and helping to put together a mitigation plan to encourage the eagles to nest again in the same area. The port maintains the nesting pair who built the nest last year never occupied it, but Berlinguette disputes that. “That’s wrong. They definitely were there. We saw them building it,” he said. “From what I gather, the eagles did have a young one in there last year. They did have one offspring. I gather there are pictures of it, which I have sent on to David Hancock.” The eagles use the tree as a perch when hunting by the waterfront, Berlinguette said, and he suspects the port is rushing to get the tree removed before the eagles decide to use the nest again.

Minister cool on increasing tax credits From page 1

Members of the B.C. film industry — which employs about 25,000 people — are calling on the provincial government to hike its own tax credits. “There has to be a level playing field with Quebec and Ontario,” LaBelle said. One of the speakers Tuesday night was Paul Klassen, a business representative for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. “We have a lot of members unemployed right now. January is typically a slow time anyways, but this is a much slower January than we’ve seen recently,” he said. Because the film industry has its ups and downs, Klassen said employees do try to plan for one bad year. “But we’ve never had two (bad years) in a row and certainly never three,” he said. “With no changes on the horizon, we just don’t know if we’re going to be able to survive a fourth year.” In addition to boosting tax credits, Klassen would also like to see the government grant the film industry a PST exemption when the tax is reinstated in April.

Bill Bennett, the minister of community, sport and cultural development, called the loss of film business “a very serious concern” but said the government has no immediate plans to increase tax credits. “We can’t afford to throw another $100 million in tax credits at this to match Ontario,” he said. “There are quiet but important voices within the (film) industry that recognize what Ontario is doing is probably not sustainable,” he added. However, Bennett said he is in talks with film industry leaders to develop other strategies to preserve business, whether it be creating a centralized agency to represent all the creative industries, or finding a way to exempt film businesses from sales tax. Some film workers have questioned Premier Christy Clark’s recent decision to spend $11 million to host the Times of India Film Awards in April while the local movie industry is struggling. But Bennett said the investment has more to do with trade than with film. “Just as we have built a commercial trading relationship with China, we are attempting to do the same thing with the billion people in India, and what better way to do it than through film?”

and add water to the coal pile when needed. The coal pile should be reduced by about 10 per cent once Neptune’s enhancement is complete, according to Belsheim. Neptune plays a long-term rule in improving air quality, according to Belsheim. “It’s part of the solution for improving the environment,” he said. “Bicycles are made of steel, rapid transit’s made of steel.” While thermal coal is generally burned to produce energy, metallurgical coal is heated in an oven and reduced to a solid carbon mass which is then used to create iron ore or steel. Differences among types of coal are insignificant when considering the broader impacts on global warming, according to Kevin Washbrook, the director of Voters Taking Action on Climate Change. Washbrook alleged the upgrade could contribute to respiratory problems among residents exposed to coal dust from the site or from the trains used for transportation.

When it comes to the daily operations at Neptune, the terminal is under the authority of Metro Vancouver, which conducts both visual inspections and microscopic analyses of particulate matter when coal dust is believed to have been spread beyond the terminal’s boundaries. “Generally what the analysis shows is that it’s mostly soil particles, like 90 per cent . . . there is a small percentage of coal particles,” said Roy Robb, environmental regulation and enforcement division manager with Metro Vancouver. Metro Vancouver discovered an excess of diesel particulate and ship emissions near Neptune in 2009. “You can’t say it’s all due to them,” Robb said. “In that location there was exceedance, in other areas there was not.” Unless responding to a complaint, inspections are fairly infrequent, according to Robb. The port authority received approximately 375 emails and letters in support of Neptune’s expansion and 640 letters expressing concerns, usually about environmental issues, according to PMV. “More than 600 citizens wrote letters to the port raising

concerns about the impacts of coal dust and diesel fumes on their health,” said Will Horter, executive director of the Dogwood Initiative and an opponent of the expansion. The coal-carrying cars are sprayed with sealant to minimize coal dust, according to Belsheim. The spray, designed to create a crust on top of the coal, is reapplied about halfway to the port. In terms of air quality, Neptune already has the necessary safeguards in place to ensure safety, according to Jim Crandles, director of planning for PMV. “All the measures that they have in place that deal with fugitive dust are appropriate,” he said. “We’re quite proud of them as a terminal operator and I have the utmost in confidence that they will continue to have that kind of relationship (with the community).” When speaking to the District of North Vancouver Monday, PMV vice-president of social responsibility Duncan Wilson fielded questions about the environmental impact of exporting coal. “We can only consider what is within the scope of our authority,” Wilson responded. “We don’t decide what commodities Canada trades.”

Family law changes imminent Common-law couples included in new legislation as of March 18

Christine Lyon clyon@nsnews.com

SIGNIFICANT changes to family law in B.C. come into force in March, but how the new rules will affect families involved in breakups is still unclear for many. In response to a number of inquiries from curious clients, Vancouver-based law firm Watson Goepel LLP hosted a forum at West Vancouver Memorial Library on Wednesday evening. The event highlighted new features of the Family Law Act, which received royal assent in November 2011 and will replace the out-of-date Family Relations Act as of March 18. “One very big change is that common-law couples are now included in the new legislation,” said Laurence Klass, a family law lawyer at Watson Goepel. “The legislation will treat commonlaw relationships on the same footing as marital relationships.” According to BCStats, the number of common-law couples in B.C. is growing at a rate three times faster than the number of married couples. Including common-law partners — defined as unmarried couples who have lived together at least two years — under the new act is one of many changes designed to make

the law more reflective of modern-day families. In the event of a breakup, property division rules will apply to both married and common-law couples. And certain property need not be shared upon separation. “Property acquired before the relationship will be excluded from being divided,” Klass said. “This would appear to make it easier for those parties that do have assets at the commencement of the relationship.” The Family Law Act also encourages out-of-court resolution — a speedier, and less costly way to resolve separation disputes. Terms such as “custody” and “access” will be phased out in favour of the less adversarial words “guardianship,” “parenting arrangement” and “parenting time.” Couples who have a child together and have lived in a marriage-like relationship for less than two years may be entitled to spousal support. The new legislation also defines family violence and takes it into consideration when making decisions about children. While Klass welcomes the coming changes, he wants to watch a few trials and appeals go through the system before deciding how the new act will affect family law in B.C. in the long term. “It’s unclear now, but we believe that there will be some challenges to aspects of the legislation,” he said. For example, he said a number of trust lawyers have expressed concern about terminology. Overall, Klass said the new legislation appears positive, “but there are still a number of grey areas.”

Port had time to relocate the nest: Bookham

trees to encourage nesting or erecting platforms to place new nests on, has not been finalized, which Berlinguette called “assbackwards.” Berlinguette opposes removing the tree on environmental and philosophical grounds. “I have a hard time with our species. I don’t appreciate our species and we’re not very good at what we do. When we put ourselves first, that condones rape of everything else around us and that’s what we’re doing,” he said. Port Metro Vancouver was always up front about the tree having to come down to make way for the Spirit Trail, according to Coun. Pam Bookham, “. . . but my understanding was they would have

the mitigation plan in place and the nest would have been relocated to a platform they would construct,” she said. But Bookham cautioned that would need further research for confirmation. “Sometimes if we don’t put things down in writing and get a signature and wave it in their faces until it’s fulfilled, details like this can get lost as the bigger issues are addressed,” she said. Still, whatever the agreement, PMV should have shown better planning, Bookham said. “What disappoints me is, with the amount of time that has passed since the approval was there, knowing where they want to begin with their work plan, that they had not already addressed this issue. I feel as though they had sufficient time to relocate this nest,” she added.

Over here, please O

F all people, Christy Clark should understand the importance of a vital film industry. She has spent millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money recently to create her own short films about where Canada starts. The premier is quick to point out that $285 million in labour subsidies awarded to local productions is already quite generous. Movie and television productions bring more than a billion dollars into the province each year. The province’s generosity is not in question, only its ability to count. Quebec and Ontario are each offering tax credits of 25 per cent on all production costs. Those costs are certainly steep, but can we afford for B.C. to give up an industry that takes pictures and leaves only footprints and money in

its wake? Film productions fill government coffers directly through taxes and fees and indirectly through the wages that are spent in local economies. The motion picture and animation industries employ 35,000 people in this province, approximately 5,000 of them on the North Shore. That’s a huge contribution to the North Shore economy. Capilano University opened the largest film school in Western Canada last year, in part because it seemed like the industry of the future. That next generation of filmmakers is now looking at a future where only post-apocalyptic movies will be shot locally. Canada may start here, but if Clark has her way, movie productions are going to spend it over there.

Armstrong didn’t act alone

Dear Editor: The Lance Armstrong interview and disclosure has shown that doping was the prevalent culture of the sport. Not for every participant; just the front runners. Armstrong didn’t invent it, he just used it to beat the others. He is high profile because he won races. Doping is in every sport. Look at soccer and football. Some drugs now banned were not even identified years ago. EPO was not identified until 2005. Armstrong’s urine and blood tests were frozen in 1999 and then tested six years later. He was clean in 1999 because nobody knew about it. The organization suspected he was using something and froze his test results so he could be ambushed years later. Scientists are still inventing these designer drugs. Look at the Olympics. A 15-year-old Chinese girl posted a swimming time faster than the male world record. We never heard from

her again. The point is that there are new drugs being invented every year. Drugging in all competitive sports is big business. Every country or team looks for an advantage. It’s the members not the organization that does the research and uses them. Armstrong won a lot of races against other drug-enhanced competitors. He bared his soul and not all of the others have come forward. There were hundreds of people involved in the doping of all the athletes all those years. Now, he is the person to be publicly stoned. I’d love a scanner that could identify every state of the competing athletes’ bodies. He’s taking the bullet for the entire culture. Armstrong did one thing better than all the other enhanced performers. He won! Leo Vanderbyl North Vancouver

Government has made NV a dirty fuel enabler Dear Editor: In the past year or so, it seems that North Vancouver has been under assault on multiple fronts; increased oil tanker traffic, massive additions at the port, condo towers on Fern Street and Lynn Valley, and now the news that coal export volumes will be doubled at Neptune Terminals. The benefits to North Vancouver will be none; the consequences will be increased noise and air pollution. I have wilfully thought that we might be getting smarter about the effects of greenhouse gases and that we can only

get better at creating and conserving energy. On the contrary, we are just getting worse and North Vancouver is now in the path of unstoppable cravings for dirty fuel the world over. I never anticipated that my community would experience the impact of globalization’s indifference to this extent. From our governments we get only short-term thinking and collusion; and no protection. What can be done to preserve our environment and our way of life? Whose city is it, anyway?

Scary Metro dog laws

Dear Editor: Metro Vancouver, who manages our Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, has invaded our North Shore wilderness with a new “dog management” program effective Jan. 1 for a few individuals who were “scared.” Now our dogs are to be trapped by our side on a leash in the wilderness where there are virtually no people nine months of the year. There are even signs saying dogs can’t go in Lynn Creek anymore, which for all us families who have raised our children with dogs is preposterous. These “law enforcers” need to learn that killing all the bears and cougars and locking up dogs will not stop scared people from being scared. Education on how to enjoy wilderness, nature and animals for these people who don’t know how to be around animals is what’s needed. There are infinite places for scared people to go where dogs have been banned and all bears and cougars killed. Trying to do that in our mountains is ridiculous. There are hundreds of dog walkers a day in these 9,214 acres of woods. One scared person should not be able to change the freedom to enjoy nature. Lori Payne, North Vancouver

Park Royal south is Squamish land

Dear Editor: After 60 years we no longer shop in West Vancouver, (Safeway gone, Park Royal a battleground) so we missed the Dec. 23 protest. But one must point out to letter writer Lin Rockwell and other business owners and customers that Park Royal south is owned by “the natives” so they have — one supposes — a perfect right to demonstrate there and even, as inconvenient it would be, to close it down altogether.

Christy upset Adrian won’t come out to play

EITHER by design or out of exasperation, Premier Christy Clark is starting to seem quite frustrated with her chief opponent’s ropea-dope tactics on the political stage.

At last week’s annual Truck Loggers Association conference (the unofficial kickoff to the year’s political season), Clark expressed impatience and frustration over NDP leader Adrian Dix’s refusal to engage her in a point-by-point exchange of public policies. She wants Dix to come out and play, but for now Dix is content to fly well below radar and stay safely out of reach of any kind of debate with the premier. He’s been criticized for being circumspect about his party’s plans for governing (although much of the NDP platform is already in place and in public view) but for now, at least, polls show his approach is working. This brings us to the stymied premier, who sputtered to the truck loggers that it wasn’t fair that her opponent won’t come out of the corner. “We’re supposed to be in a democracy, in a competition of ideas,” she told her audience. “How can you have a competition of ideas when

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

only one person has their ideas on the table?” Clark almost seemed angry about Dix’s silence and his refusal to get drawn into a public discussion with her on policy. “I think refusing to be honest with the public about where you stand on issues is going at some point to be a serious liability for

the Opposition,” she said. “Because British Columbians are going to quite rightly say, ‘We deserve to know.’” Clark’s complaints arose partly because the NDP’s forest critic, MLA Norm Macdonald, criticized her government’s recent decision to increase timber harvest levels, a move he feels will lead to an increase in raw log exports. But Macdonald told CKNW that his party’s own position on raw log exports will only be revealed “once we have a mandate from the people.” In other words, there’s nothing more to come before an election. So Clark has a fair point, at least on this particular policy. But there’s not much in politics that’s actually fair, and she’s as aware of that as anyone. The NDP will release a detailed pre-election platform

once Clark’s government tables its budget in midFebruary. Understandably, the NDP needs the most upto-date financial information from the government before it lays out any fiscal plan of its own. Nevertheless, we can expect the premier to continue her complaint that Dix and the NDP are being secretive and therefore dishonest about their true intentions until that platform is finally made public. But Clark’s challenge is not to come across as a chronic complainer. The latest Angus Reid poll shows her party is 15 points back of the NDP in public opinion, with just 15 weeks to go before

election day. That’s a lot of ground to be made up over a very short period of time, and complaining about your opponent’s tactics isn’t going to be enough to close that gap.

••• A few columns back I wrote that Education Minister Don McRae and the province’s school boards were about to combat each other over his apparent insistence that the boards find savings within the system to pay for wage hikes for unionized support staff. Trustees were getting apoplectic at the prospect of finding money to pay for, say,

a 1.5 per cent wage hike while they were scrambling to pay for existing services, let alone new costs. Wisely, though, McRae has now backed off. He says all he made was a “request” that boards find a way to pay for wage increases and that he never actually “demanded” anything. No board acceded to his request that they file funding plans showing how the wages could be paid for, so McRae has simply let the matter go. But even though there may be no fight on this issue, there will still be a likely loser: the support staff workers, mostly members of CUPE, See NDP page 10

Recycling the same tax fraud

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

A Burnaby man who used a North Vancouver address in several fraudulent tax claims was convicted of 16 criminal counts in B.C. Supreme Court in December. Mark Rosie, who frequently filed returns on behalf of drug users, often claimed losses for a recycling company as well as spousal deductions, despite the fact that many of his clients were single and none of them owned a recycling company. Rosie used his parents’s North Vancouver address on some of the claims. Rosie appeared to have a brief partnership with Mark Bennett, a former drug addict with a criminal record. Bennett testified that he approached drug users, offering narcotics in exchange for personal information which he then turned over to Rosie. In the meantime, Rosie generated a fraudulent $10,298 refund cheque for Bennett. The partnership ended when Rosie told Bennett that his refund cheque had been “ripped off,” leaving Bennett with drugs in lieu of a percentage of the cheque. The defence argued Bennett lacked credibility, but Justice Deborah Kloegman differed. “He was one of the few witnesses who was candid about his own shameful involvement in the scheme,” Kloegman wrote in her judgment. Christopher Hall offered similar testimony, telling the court Rosie promised to get him a refund. The two did drugs together until Rosie showed Hall a refund cheque, requesting that he sign it. Rosie later took the cheque, telling Hall someone had ripped him off. Part of the judgment hinged on the involvement of Bohumil Simons, an accountant who worked for H&R Block at the time. “When it was pointed out to her that she had filed 22 returns for six taxpayers all showing the same address, she said she could not recall anything that connected these taxpayers,” Kloegman wrote. Simons, who the judge referred to as “less than candid,” also prepared nine statements of business activities from five taxpayers with the same business address. “I have no doubt that Mrs. Simons played an integral part in the filing of these false tax returns,” Kloegman ruled. On several occasions, Rosie submitted returns that claimed business losses for company’s including Maurie’s Recyling, Rosie’s Recycling, and Norris Recycling. David Blackmore testified that he earned less than $8,000 in 2004, never owned Dave’s Recycling, and did not know the woman identified as his spouse in the tax return filed by Rosie. Rosie netted a return of $12,431 which was deposited in his own account. Blackmore received a refund cheque for $216.

Young love can easily be lost IN a way, any one of us could be Manti Te’o.

No, we’re not all super athletic Hawaiian Mormon football stars who go to Notre Dame, get nominated for the Heisman Trophy and play in the NCAA championship game before the heartbreaking and inspirational story of our girlfriend’s tragic death is called into question because of the teeny fact that the girlfriend does not exist. That’s a pretty select group. What’s not such a select group is those of us who, particularly in our youth, have professed to be “dating” someone only to discover, in retrospect, that wasn’t really the case. The most intriguing part of the whole Manti Te’o story, first reported by the talented Internet people at deadspin.com, was that Te’o spoke longingly and lovingly about his “girlfriend” to friends, family, teammates and reporters despite the fact that he had never actually met her in person. Never kissed her, never rubbed her feet, never held her hair back while she vomited tequila shots into the kitchen sink at a frat party. He couldn’t do those things because she wasn’t a real person — she was a hoax created through social media — but that didn’t stop him from professing his love for her to the world.

Laugh All You Want Andy Prest

If you’re confused, don’t worry — everyone is confused. It’s weird. I try not to think about it for more than five minutes at a time for fear my brain will climb out of my ear and jump in front of a bus. What’s not so weird, though, is the confusion of young romance. The story I’m about to tell is a secret shame that I’ve carried with me for more than 15 years. It’s pretty embarrassing so, um, let’s try to keep it hush hush, OK? I do have slightly higher ground in this story than Te’o does now because the girl in my story did, in fact, exist. Boy did she ever. She was a Grade 9 knockout, an athletic young thing who really knew how to fill out a Club Monaco sweater, if you know what I mean. Her name was Honey McJuggerson

(note: that wasn’t her name). We were on a soccer trip to the provincial championships when word was passed down to me that Honey, a girl I knew by reputation only, was interested in me. Being the stellar athlete that I was, I ignored this information and focused all of my energy onto the field, leading my team to a famous gold-medal victory. Just kidding — we finished in the middle of the pack and I spent all of my off-field time dreaming about Honey and her beehives. Our two teams were staying in the same hotel and at night I employed all my charms. As an extremely shy 15year-old with no game, my charms involved doing things not with her, but near her. Talking to her, of course, was completely out of the question. I’m pretty sure that if I had suffered a seizure I would have just played it cool rather than ask her to call me an ambulance. “Look at me everyone, I’ve got mad cow disease. Moo. Moo. Ha ha ha — ouch, my tongue.” By the time I worked up enough gumption to actually say something to her our tournament was over. I still had a chance, I thought, because the girls had one more game to play and we could go watch it and I would make a magic connection with my witty

post-match banter. Strangely, though, the other guys on my team and the two parents who were all riding in my dad’s van were somehow more interested in getting started on the five-hour drive home than waiting around so that we could watch the girls play in the game for seventh or eighth place. “But shouldn’t we support the girls?” I said. My dad replied with his foot. “Vroom,” it said. Here’s where my shame kicks in. I made up a clever lie, saying I forgot one of my cleats at the field. We took a detour and, with the “lost” cleat cleverly tucked in my bag, I found Honey warming up for her game, summoned all my courage and asked for her phone number. Seven digits later I had what I wanted and my missing cleat magically reappeared. At home that night, I hid in the basement so no one could hear me and summoned all my courage once again, dialling the number. “Do you want to go out with me?” I asked, using the parlance of the time. Yes, came the answer. Boom! Hot new girlfriend. Then came my biggest mistake. I explained my whole clever ploy from earlier that day to her. Her response should have set off alarm

INQUIRING REPORTER WITH lights, cameras and action going east, British Columbia’s film industry is reeling. Many of the 4,000 plus professionals who attended a meeting at North Shore Studios Tuesday are looking to the provincial government to match tax credits offered by Ontario and Quebec for 25 per cent of all production costs. B.C. currently offers tax credits on 33 per cent of labour costs. Should the government do more to keep Hollywood North from fading out, or are other provinces overspending? Find us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what you think. — Jeremy Shepherd

Casey Smith North Vancouver “No, I don’t. I think they already give generous tax breaks to the film industry. . . . What other industries are they going to give tax breaks to?

Max Barnard North Vancouver “It gives a lot of money to other industries, but I don’t know enough about the percentages (of tax credits) to give you a good answer.”

Should Victoria offer more tax credits to the film industry?

Sean Heath North Vancouver “It’d be good for the film industry as well as tourism, so yeah, incentives would be a good idea.”

Mad cow sometimes beats talking

From page 9

bells for me. “Why didn’t you just talk to me at school tomorrow?” she said. I probably would have been better off going mad cow again. We met for one “date” at a high school football game where I spent the entire time doing what all Grade 9 boys are supposed to do at a football game: share two warm beers between six guys, stand around looking cool and hope to see some older kids get into a fight. Shockingly, Honey dumped me the next week. She did it in that beautiful pre-Internet way, the handwritten note passed to me by one of her friends. My loud-mouthed Grade 10 teammate, a self-proclaimed

expert on beehives, consoled me with some good oldfashioned lewdness. “Well, at least you got to play with those cans, didn’t you?” he said. I didn’t say no. I didn’t say that she and I shared maybe seven face-to-face words together, tops. I didn’t say I never actually made any physical contact with her of any kind. “A gentleman never tells,” I said, a stupid grin on my face. If ESPN had been filming me at that moment, I would have been just a couple of steps away from a full Manti Te’o. I take solace in the fact that I was a clueless 15-year-old boy, not a 21-year-old college senior playing football for one of the most distinguished programs in the United States. Still, though, it’s not that hard to see how a little sweet honey can turn any productive young worker into a brainless drone. aprest@nsnews.com

NDP may not help CUPE From page 7 may well be staring at a wage freeze for yet another year, as the government will not give “new” money to school boards to pay for wage increases. We may well see job action down the road from some CUPE locals, up and including a withdrawal of services. But any strike would last only a short time, as the government would move swiftly to legislate an end to one. And if CUPE thinks they may get better treatment from NDP government, it should remember that party legislated ends to CUPE school strikes when it was in power in the 1990s.

DNV told grow more local food Researcher hopes Metro area municipalities will endorse project

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

WITH the right management, southwestern British Columbia could grow a bounty of fresh food, a Kwantlen Polytechnic University researcher told District of North Vancouver council Monday. Kent Mullinix, a director of sustainable agriculture and food security at Kwantlen, spoke to council in the hopes of attaining a district endorsement as well as a total of $6,000 contributed over the next three years with the ultimate aim of growing more food closer to home. Kwantlen’s three-year, $1.7-million research project is designed to cultivate the next generation of farmers while retaining more of the money spent on food within the province and lessening the environmental impact of sprawling food-distribution networks.

“We have come to fully appreciate the potential of substantially developing a more full and robust local regional food system,” Mullinix said. Mullinix mentioned large tracts of agricultural land which he said are ripe for farming. His viewpoint solicited concern from Coun. Mike Little, who wondered aloud if the economy is strong enough to keep large community farms afloat. “The subsidies need to be extremely clear because there’s a very good reason the market isn’t doing this now,” Little said. “Why, in your assessment, is the 3,500 acres not being used in Surrey?” Much of the area in question has been purchased by landowners who do not have an interest in farming, according to Mullinix. Calling the subject “incredibly important,” Coun. Roger Bassam lauded the move to investigate more efficient uses for agricultural land in the region while questioning the district’s role in the Kwantlenspearheaded project.

“I’m somewhat concerned about municipalities getting into the business of funding university studies. It’s way outside the scope of our normal business,” he said. Just how much taxpayers would be charged was also a concern for Bassam. “The tax dollars, whether they come from Metro Vancouver or they come from each individual municipality, come from the same taxpayer. Exactly the same taxpayer,” he said. The project includes contribution requests from each municipality in the region. Some of those requests are out of proportion, according to

Coun. Robin Hicks. “It’s not a lot for us to pay but I worked for Lions Bay for awhile and any cost to them is a huge imposition,” Hicks said. The project’s mandate is to ask for modest funds from each affected municipality, according to Mullinix. “If they don’t contribute something, they won’t take it seriously,” Mullinix said, quoting advice he’d received prior to addressing council. Coun. Alan Nixon suggested the district consider granting Mullinix’s request at the meeting, but council elected to defer a decision pending a staff report.

Vitamin C and Lysine powder help prevent heart attacks by W. Gifford-Jones M.D.

Why is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninety-nine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack. History shows mankind is not kind to new ideas. In 1847 one maternity patient in six who entered the University Hospital in Vienna left in a coffin. Why? Because esteemed professors ridiculed Dr. Semmelweiss, a colleague, for showing that by simply washing hands after doing an autopsy, deaths were prevented. Years later Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries. So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush, like Semmelweiss, has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, are condemning thousands of people to an early coronary heart attack. Fourteen years ago following my own coronary attack, cardiologists claimed it was sheer madness for me to refuse cholesterol-lowering drugs. Instead, I decided to

take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons. I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus is available at health food stores. Its sales will help support The Gifford-Jones Professorship in Pain Control and Palliative Care at the University of Toronto. The dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal. Those at greater risk should take one flat scoop three times a day. If high doses cause diarrhea, the dose should be decreased. This column does not recommend that those taking CLDs should stop them. This is a decision that can only be made by patients and doctors. Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterollowering drugs are the be-all-and-end-all to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!” It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it!

ORIGINAL MUSICAL WOWS AT PUSH FESTIVAL

One wild ride

■ Ride the Cyclone by Jacob Richmond, music and lyrics by Brooke Maxwell and Jacob Richmond, an Atomic Vaudeville production at the Arts Club Granville Island Stage as part of the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival. Tickets: 604-687-6144.

Martin Millerchip mmillerchip@nsnews.com

I will admit I privately questioned whether the choice of Ride the Cyclone as a mainstage show was indicative of the PuSh Festival becoming more “Fringe-y.” Not a bit of it. Sure, this Victoria-based Atomic Vaudeville production ran at the Arts Club Revue in 2011 as a self-produced collective work, but the show was already on its way to Toronto then and is now a dizzying success with even bigger stages to conquer in its future. Not having seen previous incarnations or even read the reviews, I wondered aloud to theatre friends whether a show about a choir performing songs in the hereafter was a variant of the successful Forever Plaid. Wrong again! The Cassian

PALM SPRINGS GETAWAY PAGE 17

Catholic School Chamber Choir from Uranium, Sask., are not here to recycle doo-wop or a capella standards. In fact, they are singing for their individual lives and therefore are singing from their hearts — passionately. Spoiler alert here: Knowing the plot arc won’t alter your enjoyment factor too much, but part of the show’s charm is the number of small theatrical surprises directors Britt Small and Jacob Richmond pack into 80 minutes (no intermission). I would not want to reduce the enjoyment factor for anyone, so be warned. Our host for the evening is Karnack, Wonderville’s automaton who tells the audience that the choir has ridden the fair’s roller coaster, the Cyclone, to their deaths. Ironically, the insensate Karnack’s message was just fairground advertising: “Your luck number is eight. Ride the Cyclone.” Karnack tells the five (or six!) members of the choir that one of them will live, a concept immediately embraced by over-achiever Ocean Rosenberg who bursts into a show-stopper of a number — Rielle Braid has amazing vocal range and power — on the theme of “choose me” that climaxes in a human pyramid as she literally climbs over the backs of her “friends.” Apparently “life is a play but death has an orchestra” or, in this case, a band — See Cyclone page 34

New Orleans’ own Hot 8 Brass Band has epitomized New Orleans street music for over a decade. The band plays the traditional Second Line parades, infusing their performances with the funk and energy that makes New Orleans music loved around the world.

An afternoon at the Meek with ‘the new hero of classical guitar’, known for his brilliant technique and transcendent musicality. Miloš is the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year and Echo Klassic Newcomer of the Year.

The musical merger of Habib Koité and Eric Bibb brings together two soulful histories into a never-before heard guitar sound that is passionate and ebullient. Forging a bridge across the Atlantic, their music is a fusion of deep southern blues and contemporary African rhythms.

THE adult-only 16-room Del Marcos Hotel was designed in 1947 by desert architect William F. Cody, the same year Frank Sinatra built his Twin Palms Estate in Palm Springs.

OLD SCHOOL PALM SPRINGS GETAWAY

Living it up at the Del Marcos Michael Kissinger Vancouver Courier

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Out of the tree of life, I just picked me a plum.

That’s right — apart from the sight of a fax machine and a momentary snafu in the space-time-continuum that had Bryan Adams’ “One Night Love Affair” playing on the poolside sound system — it’s Sinatra time all the time at the Del Marcos Hotel. And why shouldn’t it be. Designed in 1947 by architect William F. Cody, the Del Marcos (225 West Baristo Rd., delmarcoshotel.com) is a swingin’ 16-room joint that maintains its space-age bachelor pad vibe with mid-century modern furnishings, room names such as The Shag Room and Esquivel Deluxe, a heated saltwater pool, complimentary cruiser bikes and a strict no kids policy. Sweet relief. In fact, I heard so many velvety tunes from Ol’ Blue Eyes and his fellow Rat Packers during a recent four-day, three-night sojourn to the balmy desert oasis, I no longer saw men or

women, just “cats” and “dames.” Sure, Palm Springs, with its modest population of 45,000, is on the migratory path of retired snowbirds and sunaddicted golfers, but it also does a mean job of preserving and celebrating its mid-century modern architecture and heritage. So for a not-entirely-decrepit 40-year-old buck such as myself and his long-term “lady friend” (as my father likes to call her), there’s plenty to ogle, whether it’s 1950s bungalows, celebrity hideaways, retro furniture stores or old school cocktail bars and restaurants. Architecture porn The first thing you’ll notice about Palm Springs is that it’s a good-looking city. Not Ava Gardner knockout gorgeous, but a looker just the same — think Angie Dickinson in Police Woman. Or don’t.

Palm Springs hosting Modernist Week

From page 17

Frey) to neighbourhoods of quaint bungalows and A-frames that look like they were the inspiration for The Jetsons and The Flintstones, Palm Springs is a beaut. And much of that has to with the fact that by the middle of the 20th century, California’s Coachella Valley inspired a distinctive architectural style known as Desert Modernism. Distinguishing features include clean lines, an abundance of glass, deep overhangs, natural and man-made materials and indoor/outdoor spaces that showcase the surrounding mountain views and warm climate. In addition to serving as a playground for celebs looking for respite and air-conditioned digs away from Hollywood’s glare, Palm Springs became a canvas for local and visiting architects such as the aforementioned Cody, Frey and Wexler, as well as William Krisel and E. Stewart Williams. By the 1970s, Desert Modernism fell out of favour but is currently enjoying a renewed appreciation. For the full-blown mid-century love-in, Palm Springs hosts an 11-day Modernist Week, Feb. 14 to 24,. There’s also a number of modernist architecture tours available and, if rugged individualism and selfreliance are more your bag, you can also pick up a self-guided map and wander as much as your discerning heart desires. A good place to start is the Palm Springs Visitor Centre (2901 N. Palm Canyon Dr.), which is a converted 1965 Tramway Gas Station designed by Frey and Robson C. Chambers and looks way more stylish than a visitor centre should. Dine in style There is no shortage of decent restaurants in Palm Springs — whether it’s popular

Fab furnishings Those looking to take a piece of midcentury modernism home with them will want to stroll through the “uptown design district” along Palm Canyon Drive. Home to more than a dozen vintage furniture stores, antique shops, retro galleries and boutiques, it’s an Eames-lovers paradise, though bargains are few and far between. One consignment store we visited boasted a 1969 Maurice Calka fiberglass desk for a breath-taking $75,000. Sleep on it From high-end resorts to mid-range boutique hotels to dirt-cheap motels, there’s a great range of accommodations for the retro-inclined. In addition to the reasonablypriced Del Marcos (rooms go as low as $100 in the off-season), arbiters of cool the Ace Hotel chain recently converted an old Howard Johnson into a somewhat more pricey hipster hangout, while next door neighbour The Caliente Tropics delivers fairly standard rooms, at far cheaper prices than the Ace, with a large pool and most of its original 1964 tiki design intact. photo supplied

FRANK Sinatra’s Two Palms Estate on East Alejo Road in Palm Springs is just a couple of blocks north of the Del Marcos Hotel. brunch spots such as Cheeky’s that offer “bacon flights” with five styles of porky goodness or sleek bistros like LuLu with its all-day happy hour. But for old school charm, you can’t go wrong with Sherman’s Deli, a Kosher-style family restaurant that’s been

FILM

Passion trumps politics in A Royal Affair

■ A Royal Affair. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel. Starring Mads Mikkelsen, Alicia Vikander and Mikkel Folsgaard. Rating: 8 (out of 10)

Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

AN advantageous royal match, an unsuspecting young girl, a monarch who won’t give up other women. If Prince Charles were slightly dottier, A Royal Affair might be Princess Diana’s story, but it’s not.

Nominated for Best Foreign Film at this year’s Oscars, the Danish film is the tragic and true story of the doomed royal relationship that ensued after an English girl was sent abroad to marry the King of Denmark in 1766. The monarch enjoys the theatre, Caroline (Alicia Vikander) is told. “I could not imagine a more perfect husband,” she enthuses. But upon arrival she finds a husband who giggles more than he speaks, refuses to give up his prostitutes, and likes to bark like a dog: King Christian VII is mentally ill. As in all great courtly tales there is a wicked stepmother (Trine Dyrholm) with ambitions for her own offspring, and the arrival of an accomplished young beauty is certainly a threat. And so before Caroline’s first night is over, a seed of mistrust is planted. “Don’t steal my light,” is Christian’s petulant threat to his new bride. Caroline produces a male heir (at age 16, according to the history books) and, her primary duty fulfilled, she and the king become officially estranged. On a trip abroad the king becomes really ill, and a physician is needed. Johann Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen) may be rough around the edges but he proves to be the perfect tonic for Christian’s manic episodes. Struensee becomes the king’s playmate and constant companion, his personal physician. The Age of Enlightenment may be dawning elsewhere in Europe but Denmark is still controlled and bled dry by a corrupt nobility. A system of serfdom remains in effect, whereby slaves who work the land are subject to torture and ill treatment by See Film page 34

■ Vintage Wedding Style, by Elizabeth Demos (Chronicle Books, 208 pages) $35 There is no doubt that your wedding day is one of the most important events in your life. It is the start of a new chapter and is something you will always remember. An enormous amount of effort goes into wedding preparations and wedding designer Elizabeth Demos wants to help you with creating a special theme for that day. Demos presents 12 different concepts for your wedding and provides descriptions on how to create a unique feel for each one. Within those dozen alternatives are a wide range of styles. The glamorous Reviving Gatsby, with its lawn party setting and literary touches to the table settings, is romantic and filled with nostalgic charm. The Farmhouse Fete is all country with a simple, casual atmosphere and plenty of fun. In each of the 12 approaches Demos provides descriptions and photos of weddings based on that theme. She also gives instructions on how to create some of the special touches that provide the extras that will set the tone.

Berube returns ‘home’ in roundabout way Well-travelled East Coast musician studied jazz at Capilano University

■ Mark Berube, Friday, Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Centennial Theatre, part of the Electric Evenings series. Tickets: $30/$27, visit centennialtheatre. com.

Erin McPhee emcphee@nsnews.com

WHILE Mark Berube is set to take the stage at North Vancouver’s Centennial Theatre next Friday for the first time, that’s not to say it won’t be a homecoming of sorts. Not only does the upcoming show mark the Montreal-based singersongwriter’s return to Canada since heading overseas in mid-December for a packed tour that included a number of opening dates for European songstress Sophie Hunger, it also marks a return to his former postal code. “I used to live in Vancouver for quite a few years, so for me it’s like I’m coming to my second home in Canada. . . . There’s no culture shock,” he says, reached Monday from Fribourg, Switzerland on a rare day off before heading to France for a show Tuesday evening. Berube, who was born in Manitoba, raised in Swaziland and graduated from high school in Pitt Meadows. He received a degree in English from Simon Fraser University and spent a year and a half studying jazz at Capilano University. While his upcoming North Shore show marks his Centennial Theatre debut as a solo artist, he did contribute music to a modern dance performance in 2004. “I’m just very excited to do this concert there and coming back to Vancouver is always a treat,” he says. Playing in Vancouver also allows Berube to reconnect, both on and offstage, with friends and former collaborators, including local boys Dan Mangan and C.R. Avery, who were among the featured guests on his March 2011 release, June in Siberia, his third full-length album. “If we’re in town and they’re in town I always invite them and, if they’re available, they usually come down, so who knows?” he says on whether they’ll be joining him at the Centennial Theatre.

Japandroids, Jepsen get some love in critics poll John Goodman jgoodman@nsnews.com

TWO Vancouver acts (Carly Rae Jepsen and Japandroids), and one who used to live on the West Coast but now calls Montreal home (Grimes), have made a big impact on the Village Voice’s annual Pazz+Jop Critics Poll released last week. Under former music editor Robert Christgau the alternative New York City weekly began polling critics in 1971 (The Who’s Who’s Next won that year) for their favourite albums and added a singles list in 1979 (Ian Dury and The Blockheads “Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick” came out tops). Even though Christgau was dismissed from the Village Voice in August 2006 the paper has continued the tradition of compiling critics’ lists at the end of each year. The digital age has greatly sped up the process of counting ballots at Pazz+Jop — it used to take

months for the year-end tally compiling hundreds of lists to come out. The second week of January must be some kind of efficiency record for the paper. This year Carly Rae Jepsen’s massive hit “Call Me Maybe” has topped the Singles Chart beating out Miguel (“Adorn”), Usher (“Climax”) and Frank Ocean (“Thinkin’ ‘Bout You”) who came in at 2, 3 and 4. No mean feat for the Mission, B.C. based performer who ruled radio airwaves in 2012 — selling records is one thing but getting the nod from Pazz+Jop is an appreciation of the track in an entirely different context and a huge

achievement for Jepsen. Her album, Kiss, also came in at 39. Japandroids’ “The House That Heaven Built” is Number 5 on the Singles Chart with Grimes placing two on the list with “Oblivion” at 13 and “Genesis” at 23. Japandroids’ Celebration Rock is fourth on the Album Chart behind Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar and Fiona Apple who are 1, 2 and 3 respectively. Grimes’ Visions comes in at number 9. Other Canadian acts on the album list are Leonard Cohen — Old Ideas at 22, Neil Young and Crazy Horse — Psychedelic Pill at 31 and Godspeed You! Black Emperor Allelujah! — Don’t Bend! Ascend! at 37. For the complete Pazz+Jop package with full album and singles lists plus individual ballots and several essays on the year in music (such as A Trip Through Fiona Apple’s Wheelhouse: The singer-songwriter wrestles with the idea of mind as machine by Audra Schroeder) go to villagevoice. com/pazznjop.

Drummer charts own path through jazz Dan Brubeck both honours and reinvents his dad’s classic tunes ■ Artists Confidential: Dan Brubeck, Drummer, West Vancouver Memorial Library, Tuesday, Jan. 29 10:30 a.m. Free admission. ■ Dan Brubeck Quartet, Kay Meek Centre, Friday, Feb. 1, 8 p.m. Tickets: $20 Box Office 604-981-6335.

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

IN most families the shared DNA is recognizable by a cleft chin or a common blood type. For the Brubeck family, the genetic lineage appears in a frequent propensity for unusual time signatures and a love of jazz that resides in the groove between a brassy assault and a quarter-to-three gin-soaked torch song. Dan Brubeck, perhaps best known as the drummer in the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, is slated to bring his sound to West Vancouver next week. While some musicians trace their love of rhythm and melody to the soundtrack of their childhood, Brubeck hearkens back more than 90 years to the days when his father was in utero, listening to the classical piano-playing of his own mother. “He was in a crib right next to her and listened to music every day,” Brubeck says of his father’s infancy. “It’s been completely in the family lineage for generations.” A composer and pianist, Dave Brubeck died last December at the age of 91. When Dan was six years old, the world opened its ears to Time Out, which remains one of the most popular jazz albums ever recorded, including such standards as “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo a la Turk.” See Brubeck page 33

Brubeck following in the family tradition From page 31

“There were a lot of times my dad was gone because he was on the road quite a bit,” Dan says, recalling his childhood spent listening in on one of the most vibrant periods in the history of jazz. “We also would be hearing (Thelonious) Monk and Charles Mingus and be on tour with those guys, too.” Brubeck uses a tone of familiarity ordinarily reserved for a common acquaintance at the grocery store when describing the influence of saxophone master Cannonball Adderley and the personal kindness of drumming legend Buddy Rich. Brubeck cites Joe Morello, the drummer in the Dave Brubeck Quartet, as the single musician who captured his fascination. “My idol when I was young was Joe Morello,” he says. “He could just play a drum roll with one hand.” But while Morello was quick, he also had a musicality to his approach that put him ahead of many of his contemporaries, according to Brubeck. “It seemed like a lot of drummers back then put a lot of

emphasis on . . . ‘How fast is he?’” he says. “Like they were gunslingers or something.” For Brubeck, the line between good and great drummers is often found in a willingness to melt into the song, holding those brilliant outbursts for just the right times. “Playing with dynamics is important, and kind of picking your moments,” he says. Now approaching 60, Brubeck recalls his parents’ reaction when he decided to become a professional musician. “They definitely let us all know that playing music wasn’t going to be easy. They also knew that being happy was a big part of stuff,” he says. For Brubeck, drumming was a channel for his abundance of energy, but while he remains largely uninhibited with sticks in hand, choosing an artistic life has meant years of measured spending. “It’s a bit of a grind to keep everything going financially. Just doing music is close to impossible to survive doing that unless you got your hands in a lot of different pies,” Brubeck notes. “You learn to be kind of un-stable as a way of life.”

Speaking to the North Shore News from Nelson, B.C., Brubeck reflects on his father’s legacy. Dan recently took the stage in a packed auditorium show that served as a memorial for his father. Much of the drummer’s career has been spent both honouring and reinventing his father’s music. “This band at Kay Meek is going to be doing a lot of my dad’s stuff and maybe a few original things and things that I’ve written,” he says. While Dan has mainly specialized in instrumental jazz, his own quartet is planning to unveil some of the seldom-heard vocals to Dave Brubeck’s classic melodies. “I thought, ‘What could we do that’s completely different than these other groups?’” he says. Adam Foster, the quartet’s singer and bass player, often reminded Dan that he knew the vocals on many of the Brubeck tunes. “One night, I was like, ‘Yeah go ahead and sing it,’ and my jaw kind of dropped,” Dan recalls.

Berube going back into the studio in March From page 29 Berube met Hunger, a well-known Swiss artist, after opening for her in Paris at La Cigalle in June 2010. The following year, in the fall of 2011, she came to one of his shows in Zurich. The two artists kept in touch and when Hunger was in Montreal this summer recording songs for her new album, including at Hotel 2 Tango in Montreal with Howard Bilerman (who Berube worked with on June in Siberia), she invited him and a couple of his bandmates to join her. Berube played piano, and Kristina Koropecki cello and Amélie Mandeville bass. Berube then agreed to join Hunger in Europe this winter. He hopes she’ll appear on his next record, which he’s currently writing. “I’ve got over half of the material done for the next album so I should be starting in the studio in March probably and hopefully the new album will come out in the fall,” he says. Berube plans to try a different studio and producer than Bilerman (Arcade Fire and Basia Bulat) this time around, instead he plans to work with The Besnard Lakes’ Jace Lasek (Wolf Parade, Land of Talk and Patrick Watson), whose studio Breakglass is likewise based in Montreal. “I just want to try something different,” says Berube. “Jace comes from a guitar, kind of ’70s psychedelic, background. I’m not saying my music is going to go psychedelic by any means but sometimes when you mix those two worlds you get interesting things.” The multi-instrumentalist’s works combine pop, African rhythms and strings with his lyrical chops, which have been compared to Leonard Cohen, resulting in what’s been described as a “unique blend of indie chamber-folk.” His approach to songwriting is “quite a simple process,” laughs Berube, “but the details are the difficult part.” When crafting a new song, he works to ensure its melody can stand alone, a capella. “As soon as you have a melody that doesn’t need an instrument to guide it, it can just be sung by itself and is strong enough, then I can start building the song around that melody,” he says. “Once I get the phrasing and everything and have a general idea then I have a bank of lyric ideas that I keep separately and I kind of play a matching game.” Berube is also considering working with acclaimed East Coast artist Amelia Curran on his new project. “I love what she does and we keep bumping into each other a lot on the road so we’ve talked about maybe co-writing at some point,” he says. Montreal is another important muse. “I’m half Québécois too so for me it’s really important to have the French-English environment. . . . It’s really a French-English fully bilingual lifestyle that I lead over there and I love that,” he says. “There’s always something new, there’s always something fresh and you’re really dealing with two different paradigms so it can be very inspiring artistically too, there’s all these different reference points.” In addition to getting going on his new album, Berube is also looking forward to completing a six-week residency at The Banff Centre starting April 30 thanks to a grant from the Quebec arts council. “I can’t wait,” he says. “I’m actually going to bring my wife and daughter out too and going to work a part of the day and then have some time with (them) so it’s going to be great.” Berube’s wife has a Swiss background, and is currently on tour with him along with their two-year-old, spending time with her extended family while he travels to nearby shows. “I’m not allowed to come to Europe without them,” he laughs.

Heartburn Reflux By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food).

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. ! Working in a health #40 food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL ! My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON ! I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON ! I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN !Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

From page 13 whose sound was often muddy on opening night — and at this point it’s now clear that each cast member will get a turn in the spotlight to showcase their musical chops and their character’s teenage angst. Even though Karnack immediately displays an ability to change the rules — to Ocean’s consternation he decrees that the choice of who lives will be by consensus — I thought the obvious plot structure would become repetitive. Wrong again! That it does not is because each choir member’s personal story and musical genre is wildly different. Kholby Wardell is a knockout as Noel Gruber, the only gay boy in Uranium whose tedious mall job at Taco Bell is only relieved by his fantasy of being a post-war Parisienne hooker with a heart of black charcoal: “If I could have one dream, I’d be that f---ed-up girl.” Jameson Matthew Parker plays Misha Barchinsky, a new Canadian orphan and the angriest boy in town who has been drinking since Grade 7. He has an Internet girlfriend in the Ukraine, whom he sings to while a hilarious projection of her dancing in a cornfield plays on the upstage screen. It’s fitting — and magical — when he enters her virtual world. It turns out that only rap soothes this savage. By the time Elliot Loran turns nerdy Ricky Potts into a Rocky Horror glam-rock idol and the cat women of Zolar make an appearance, I was no longer thinking “Who’s next?” but “What on earth could be next?” Musically, it turns out, it’s the best voice in the show. Sarah Jane Pelzer is Jane Doe, the headless body found in the wreckage and assumed to be one of the choir. Jane doesn’t know — not having her own head — and hopes Saint Peter will tell her who she is. Doe appears in white makeup with a wrap around her neck and moves throughout the show like a marionette with a string or two missing. Her number has blackclad umbrella-holding grave-side mourners as chorus and feels like an Edward Gorey cartoon come to life. Fabulous stuff. Last up is Kelly Hudon’s Constance Blackwood, the nicest girl in town who, it transpires, deliberately decided to lose her virginity in the grungiest way possible. Her rock-anthem finale includes a recorder solo! Hudson’s character is spot-on, but her voice doesn’t quite have the power of the others. In fairness, there were some technical hiccups on opening night that appeared to affect this scene, so that criticism may be unfair. If what I have written does not appeal, consider buying tickets for any teens in your family. This knockout musical is by young people for young people. But if you don’t, it won’t matter to the show’s success. Whether or not Ride the Cyclone is Broadway-bound, it will be a staple of high school drama clubs for years to come.

Film creates mesmerizing drama From page 21 landowners. Struensee has some radical ideas and has written anonymous pamphlets advocating the end of censorship and the abolition of torture. He finds a kindred spirit in the well-read queen, sends her some of his writings, and the two begin a cerebral affair that inevitably turns physical. Struensee becomes the most powerful man in the kingdom, the “de facto” ruler of Denmark, implementing many liberal ideals that liberate the people but incur the wrath of the noblemen. It’s only a matter of time before the affair, and the revolutionary spirit that accompanies it, comes crashing down. The fate of Christian, Struensee and Caroline is a well-known piece of history in Denmark but a surprising one for most Western viewers. Arcel, co-writer of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo screenplay, brings the tale to life, contrasting bucolic vistas outside of the castle with the queen’s stifling life at court. Costuming and set design never overwhelm the story, as they do in so many period pieces. Mikkelsen makes a great romantic hero here (yes, he was the man who cried blood in Casino Royale) and Vikander only looks fragile, bringing great sturdiness to Caroline. A mesmerizing drama about passion and politics during the Age of Enlightenment.

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are #1 caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC!Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No need to make claims. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

MANN, John Howard "Howie" Jul 18, 1918 - Jan 13, 2013 Born in the dot on the map known as Benton Station, Alberta, Howard was soon packed with his family into a Model T, westward bound for Vancouver. Growing up in the wilds of Kerrisdale and Point Grey, building tree top forts or swinging Tarzan style through the forest, Howard delighted in being a scallywag. After successfully blowing up the front steps of the family home with his chemistry set Howard set his goal to become a chemist. Then wham! Howard fell head over heels for his sweet sixteen, blue eyed Mary. Five years later, 1944, Howard, now a graduate of UBC, walked Mary down the aisle. They found a Hollyburn lot to build their honeymoon house on, soon to be chock a block full with three little girls, Merrily, Tralee and Shelley. A bigger home for the family was found in Dundarave where they had a lot of fun turning it into their piece of paradise. Too soon their three little girls grew up. Howard and Mary fell under the spell of the gypsy life. They sold their home and traveled the highways and byways of North America in their Airstream trailer. Later, settled back in West Van they continued their passion for gardening, homemaking and being together. Inseparable for 63 years Mary passed away in 2007. Howard, born for adventure, now found a new delight in travelling the globe with his daughters and son in law. When at home he had great fun with his new comrades at the West Vancouver Senior Center, where he became renowned for his limericks. Here’s one for a top notch man, who we were so blessed to have as our Dad. There was a fine gent from West Van Whose name was John Howie Mann His limericks he would recite To everyone in sight And now St Peter is his number # 1 fan. Dad’s wonderful life was celebrated at a family dinner, as it will be at many more to come.

FARWAGI, Raymond

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our 'Papa'. On the early morning of Tuesday January 22, 2013, at age 90, we said goodbye to a brave and loving husband, father and Papa. He was an inspiring, gentle man; who was curious about life and continuous learning, and cared more about others than himself. Raymond was a man of strong faith who confronted life and his illness with determination, strength and grace. Beloved husband of Mireille for 60 years, and dear father of Monique and Micheline (Peter). Greatly loved and admired by his grandchildren Chantal (Bryan), Chelsea (Marvin), Marisa and Maddison. He is survived by his sister Yole, and his nieces and nephew. Raymond was a man of integrity who impacted many both personally and professionally. His career spanned various businesses, where most recently he is remembered for his contributions to the optical industry. A devout Catholic and a member of the Knights of Columbus, 4th degree, he will be greatly missed by many friends and family from around the world. We are all so thankful for the time we were given to love him. We are deeply grateful for the care and support given him by his long-time physician, Dr. Liang Ng, and the staff at both Margaret Fulton and West Vancouver Care Centre. Prayers will be held at St. Anthony’s Parish, 2347 Inglewood Avenue, West Vancouver on Friday January 25, 2013 at 6:00pm. Funeral Mass will be held Saturday January 26, 2013 at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s society or Margaret Fulton Centre c/o the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated. For those wishing to share a memory of Raymond, please go to www.hollyburnfunerals.com

LINDSAY - Patricia Charlotte (nee Pennock ) Jan. 11, 1916 - Jan. 15, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of a wonderful mother and friend. After a long life well lived, Patricia passed away peacefully at home at the age of 97. She will be lovingly missed by her five children Grant (Tracy), Ian (Erin), Toni (Bev), Gillian (Michael), and Sarah (Elaine), her grandchildren Andrew (Jacqui), Alexandra, Ashley and Michael; as well as many cherished nieces and nephews. Pat was born in Winnipeg and married John (Ace) Milner Lindsay in 1944 and moved to Victoria. In 1954, the family moved to West Vancouver. Pat adored gardening, assisted various charities and was a well respected realtor for over 30 years in West Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast. In 1980, Pat moved to Sechelt to be closer to her beloved summer home at Sakinaw Lake, where she spent every possible moment with her family and many treasured friends over the years. The family acknowledges with sincere, heartfelt gratitude the exceptional kindness and loving care given by devoted home care staff during Pat’s final months. A private family service will be followed by a Celebration of Life to be held Saturday, February 16th, 3pm 6pm at Pebbles Restaurant, 5454 Trail Ave. Sechelt. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to your charity of choice.

MOSSLEY, Ellis

1921 - January 8, 2013 Beloved husband, father, uncle, friend and the kindest, funniest man to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. He was born in Bolton, England and fought in India and Burma during the Second World War. He mined at Britannia Beach, British Columbia and was a custodial supervisor for the West Vancouver School Board. He could find the humour in anything and the best in anyone. He had a boundless curiosity and read voraciously. He loved words and puns and puzzles and jokes. He was a musician who played the harmonica and a dreamer who played the Lotto. He loved mulling things over and fixing things up. What he loved best were his family and friends and he devoted his life to making their lives better in any way he could. He is survived by his beautiful wife Sally Ann to whom he was married for over sixty years, his son Robin, daughter Kelly, Robin’s wife Helen, and the countless friends he made everywhere and every day. He was a poet. He wrote this; I do not ask for tears or sad repining, Nor do I ask for flowers to cheer my way. But remember me just as you knew me, enjoying God’s world in work and play. Remember as we sat together talking of good times and friends we used to know, Then smile and think that I am still beside you if only just because I want it so. We all are given time enough to travel and no one knows when comes the journeys end. Now it is done I ask but for the memory of the happy times when I was just your friend. He will be sorely missed and oh so fondly remembered.

THE Mitsubishi RVR brings a low price and excellent fuel economy to the crowded compact SUV market. A redesign for the 2013 model has given the RVR a more athletic appearance.

2013 Mitsubishi RVR

RVR brings value to SUV class

Columnist Brendan McAleer reviews the 2013 Acura ILX in next week’s Rev.

THE compact SUV market segment has grown considerably over the years.

Just about every manufacturer has one in their lineup and each offers a viable model or two to be considered for purchase. This hotly contested segment has witnessed duelling manufacturers building a wider variety of big SUVs. In 2010, Mitsubishi responded to this trend by releasing the RVR, a smaller version of their popular Outlander CUV. Since that time, the RVR has become a sales leader for Mitsubishi. For 2013, they decided to give the RVR a facelift inside and

Four-wheel drive is available on SE models and is standard on GT variants. All 4WD vehicles come standard with a recalibrated continuously variable transmission. Performance With the RVR, Mitsubishi has concentrated their efforts on fuel economy and low emissions. The engine in all models is a 2.0-litre fourcylinder which produces 148 horsepower.

The redesigned grille opening, front fascia and bumper reinforce the model’s athletic appearance. The black outline around the fog lamps is carried along the side by the door sills and balanced by the rear lower fascia. The updated tail lamps feature smoother lines and compliment the overall design. All-in-all, the RVR is a sharp looking vehicle. Rounding out the visual changes for the 2013 model are some new interior accents. There is a splash of chrome on the door panels but the highlight change is the new

The transmission is even more engaging in GT trim and adds steering column mounted paddle shifters. To further aid fuel efficiency, Mitsubishi includes an ECO mode shift indicator. A revised rear suspension setup improves handling and ride comfort. Factor in the RVR’s comparatively light weight and it feels agile and stable. Being smaller than some of its competitors also offers a fairly tight turning radius making parking a breeze. And

THE biggest changes in the RVR’s new design are all in the exterior finish — it’s now a sharp-looking SUV.

because it sits 215 millimetres (8.5 inches) off the ground, the RVR is can handle some light off-road work as well. I found myself enjoying the day-to-day driving with the RVR — the overall feel is predictable and simple in character and there’s plenty of road feedback through the steering. Environment Thankfully, even though the RVR is smaller on the outside, it doesn’t feel claustrophobic. In fact, there is plenty of head and knee room in the rear

equipment, along with other safety features. Mitsubishi’s industry leading warranty cannot be discounted either. The only downside is that the interior design is still a bit outdated compared to some competitors but it doesn’t look or feel cheap in any way or shape. Features The RVR’s $19,998 starting price makes it one of the most affordable in this market segment. Even the range topping GT model’s $28,998 is comparatively lower in price than its competitors. Even at these price points,

seats for the average adult. Also, because the front seats are raised, rear passengers can slide their feet underneath and stretch out even more. Mitsubishi offers new fabrics for GT models which go nicely with the standard leather wrapped steering wheel. This premium-like experience throughout the cabin continues across the model range with standard features like heated front seats and keyless entry. That’s pretty good for a car with a starting price less than $20,000. The RVR also provides seven airbags as a standard

Mitsubishi was able to offer standard features such as heated front seats, air conditioning, ABS with Electronic BrakeForce Distribution, a braking assist system, seven airbags, tilt/ telescopic steering, power door locks with remote keyless entry and a 140-watt AM/FM/ CD/MP3 audio system with a multi-information display.

The Mitsubishi RVR is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety top safety pick and is backed by one the best warranties in the world — 10 years or 160,000 km limited powertrain, five years or 100,000 km limited basic coverage and five years unlimited mileage roadside assistance. Thumbs up The affordable RVR provides excellent fuel economy and a good amount of standard features for the money. These

strengths plus its smooth, quiet ride and predictable steering make this compact SUV equally appealing for daily commutes or long road trips. Thumbs down Since the RVR is designed to be kind on the environment and your wallet, it won’t be your first choice for a spirited drive. And while the interior shows quality, it’s not the most exciting to look upon. The bottom line The 2013 Mitsubishi RVR is a great value for your money and deserves consideration in the ultra competitive CUV market.

Competitors Toyota RAV4 The RAV4 is credited for creating the compact SUV market. Unwilling to rely on its history, Toyota is going to be introducing a completely new version of this vehicle shortly. The current prices range from $23,790 to $31,700. The RAV4 is slightly larger than the RVR but also a little thirstier, with fuel consumption at 6.4 l/100 km of highway driving.

likely lose that title. Honda CR-V Like the RAV4, the CR-V has been around since the beginning. With a starting price of $25,990, The CR-V offers some impressive standard features such as a multi-angle rear-view camera. However, all these features add weight and the base model CR-V weighs slightly more than a fully loaded RVR. This also results in poorer fuel efficiency with 6.4 l/100 km on the highway the best it can manage. The Honda CR-V has long been a respected CUV and the

newly updated model promises to meet expectations. Subaru Outback With a starting price of $28,495, the Outback is amongst the upper reaches of this market segment. But, for those looking for more excitement from their utility vehicle, this Subaru offers a compelling argument. The base model Outback’s 173 h.p. is 25 more than the RVR and there is also the optional 256 h.p., sixcylinder boxer engine for true thrill seekers. Subaru will always be true to themselves and offer an allwheel-drive, sporty alternative to the mainstream.

Designed without compromise, ATS has it all - as a quick look at the chart below will clearly demonstrate. 2013 CADILLAC ATS
